Curcumin Kills Cancer Claim

Once again curcumin, one of the chemicals in turmeric, has been reported as being able to kill cancer cells.

This time a team at an Irish research centre makes the claim and it has been reported on the BBC News website.

This time it is gullet cancer that curcumin kills – gullet (or oesophageal) cancer accounts for about 5% of cancer deaths in the UK.

More research is being carried out and it is hoped that this will lead to new cancer treatments being developed from the natural curcumin chemical.
